Welcome to Rennes 2 University!

A word from the Vice-president for International Relations

The city of Rennes is a student city par excellence, with a vibrant cultural scene geared to young people. Rennes lies at the heart of the historic region of Brittany with its Celtic heritage and yet is only 1 hour 25 minutes away from Paris by high-speed train.

We cater for all types of international students and exchange students.

We pride ourselves on our welcome week at the beginning of each semester which allows students to get the best possible start : staff from our International Office guide new students through their registration formalities and help them settle in to life on campus and in Rennes. Throughout the year, the International Office is open daily to help you with enquiries.

Exchange students are allowed to choose classes in 2 different departments plus take evening classes in our dedicated French language school, the CIREFE. We also offer a small number of classes taught in English.

You will be able to improve your written and spoken French with lessons at our highly-renowned French language school, the CIREFE. PhD students, post Docs and researchers can avail of the CMI (Centre de Mobilité Internationale) with its 79 studio apartments.

We look forward to welcoming you to Rennes 2 University. For now, you can discover Rennes 2 by video!
